US$ 15 billion (€12,400 billion) over the next 2 years. This is financial support the UK government is helping to co-ordinate as the G7 host nation in order to fund businesses and services that promote the integration of women into the labour market in developing countries. This commitment has been placed on the G7 Foreign and Development Ministers’ meeting table, held under the UK Presidency in London (03-05 May), in a bid to work on joint responses to global threats. “This year, as we build back better from the pandemic, the UK is putting girls’ and women’s rights at the heart of our G7 presidency, uniting countries that share our values so we shape a better path ahead,” said Dominic Raab, UK Foreign Secretary in a note released by the Foreign Office. Facilitating their access to the labour market will serve to transform “the fortunes not just of individuals, but whole communities and nations,” he added. The goal of the program is to support the economic empowerment of women. In addition to the members of the Group of 7 most developed countries, which includes the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Italy and Canada, Dominic Raab, the British Foreign Secretary, has also invited ministers from Australia, India, South Africa and South Korea to the discussions.
